Meet The Filmmaker, Mona Maser, “Rite of Spring”

While passionately chasing my dreams I ran into Mona who was kind enough to leave the rope swing long enough to answer a few question for me… and if you were wondering I did catch the ice cream truck.  Who says dreams don’t come true.


MM: Why did you become a filmmaker?

MM: I thought I was being brave and following my dream — now I’m wondering what I was thinking.


MM: What are we going to see at the EFP? Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it?

MM: This is a short film I did for fun.  Well, I really did it to submit to the traveling New Belgian Short Film Fest – but it didn’t get in.


MM: What else are you working on?

MM: I’ve been working on web videos for small businesses but am also working on a short documentary and educational short films for elementary age children on social issues.


MM: Tell us one weird thing about you and/or your movies?

MM:The weird thing is that I cannot come up with the weird thing unless you count that I seem to have a persistent desire to work on film projects.


MM: Where can people go to find out more about you and your work?

MM:  www.bereelparthena.com


MM: Is there anything you’d like to say about The Emerging Filmmakers Project?

MM: Nice to be here.


MM: Thank you Mona for chatting with me… and for making me look like I was talking to myself.

“Rite of Spring” will screen at the May 15th Emerging Filmmakers Project!
